What kinds of products is this Matcha Paste best for ?

This Matcha Paste is the best for the following products:

  • Foods that are wrapped in transparent packaging materials and displayed and exposed by light in a showcase or on product shelves.
  • Foods with acidic pH values.

    Due to its characteristics, this matcha paste is also suitable for those who desire the following operational benefits.

  • I want to prevent powder from scattering when handling.
  • I want to eliminate matcha lumps when mixing with ingredients containing water.
  • I want to mix well with powdered ingredients.

How much matcha paste do I have to use ?

【About usage】
Please use the Matcha Paste equivalent to 4.5% of the total amount of the food as a guide.
The raw material composition of the Matcha Paste is 78.0% water and 22.0% matcha.
Since 22% of the matcha paste used as an amount equivalent to 4.5% of the total amount of food is matcha ingredient, the amount of net matcha used is about 1%.
※4.5% X 22%=about 1%

Please adjust your favorite color tone and flavor by increasing or decreasing the amount of the matcha Paste used.

How to store the Matcha Paste after opening it ?

【About your use】
Since it contains water, please “use up” after opening.
If it is difficult to use it up, we recommend you to use EVERGREEN Matcha Powder.

There were small lumps in the Matcha Paste,
what are these?

【About your use】
The small lumps in the Matcha Paste are lumps of “matcha”.
Those are not pieces of tea leaves or impure foreign substances.

These lumps are generated in a small amount during the retort sterilization process after filling an aluminum bag with the matcha paste.
Due to the physical characteristics of the paste, it is impossible to completely remove air slightly remaining inside of the bag after filling the Matcha Paste, and it is thought that a small air layer generated inside the bag is the cause of formation of the small lumps.

In the case of “kneading” for cakes and breads, the lumps are easily decomposed.
However, if there is no strong kneading process or if the paste is mixed with soft raw materials, small lumps may look like foreign substances when the paste is made into a product.
As a solution, it is recommended that you “rub well” before opening and “filter” with a mesh if necessary.

Can I drink it normally ?

【About use】
Of course, there is no problem with drinking.
Unlike matcha, which is drunk at a tea ceremony, the raw materials are selected assuming that they will be used for food purposes.
The raw tea leaves for this Matcha Paste are selected with the balance of umami, sweetness, astringency, and bitterness, cost, and long-term stable supply in mind.
